Vitacost - First Time Is the Last!
This was my first time to order from Vitacost but I did it because someone recommended some of the Vitacost brand products and offered me a 10$ off coupon. I completed my order and all the items were listed as "in stock." I then received and e-mail that my order had shipped, but at the bottom there was one item that was listed as "not shipped" and that it would be shipped later.
A few days later, I received a notice that my order was canceled. I fired off a quick e-mail complaining and asking why this item that was supposedly "in stock" was now suddenly just canceled. I received back a snippy, semi-apologetic e-mail from a customer service agent, informing me that it was the manufacturer who was out (this is a VITACOST brand product, they should know if it's in stock or not) and that I could sign up to be notified when it was back in stock. I wanted to order this when I had the coupon and when I had enough for free shipping, not later, when they supposedly have it in stock again....but how can I believe the website?
This was enough for me to rule this company out for any possible purchases but there was one more blow when my order arrived today and I discovered that they had not only removed the out of stock item, but they also magically made my 10$ discount disappear. I am so mad right now. Companies like this should not be in business.
I will be going back to ordering from Super Supplements who: are honest, have excellent customer service, have fast shipping and keep accurate stock reporting on their website.
